Unpacking

I have spent almost all day helping my friend unpack her stuff in her new home.
I mentioned the other day how much I love organizing and unpacking, needless to say I had a ton of fun today. This was what her closet looked like when I got there...
Almost every shirt was poorly hung or inside out. The longest part of our day was spent hanging them all in the same direction. We made sure that you could see the front of the shirt from the front of the closet. At first she asked if we could just organize them without hanging the correctly because it would be easier. I didn't let her do it halfway though.
This was the after picture...
When your closet is organized like this it is so much easier to get ready in the morning. If you know it is going to be a hot day you only have to look at the shirts in the sleeveless section rather than the entire closet. It also will save you money because you know what you have and don't buy too many similar items.
We also unpacked her bathroom...
Those containers come in packs of three for only $1 at Walmart and are the best things for drawers! I use them in my hall closet, bathrooms and even my kitchen. Having a drawer like this costs less than $3 and will help keep your place clean because it is so easy to quickly pick up.

If anyone is interested I may do a tutorial on how to organize a closet like this!
It really isn't that hard but there is a method to the madness.
